Forever autumn

The blog has been focusing a lot on 6mm models recently so I thought for a change I’d showcase this WFB Wood Elf Lord. For this model I decided to use an autumnal palette of rich browns and orange. As the model is not for gaming I mounted it on a 40mm base which was built up with Milliput (you can see my guide here). With the base I tried to follow the flow of the model which sweeps down from left to right in order not to ruin the composition of the model. One of the things I really like about this model is the fact that it is quite stylised and painterly and the sculptor has clearly put a lot of thought into the pose and composition of the model, from the direction of the cloak and hair through to the position of the bow and quiver and even down to the angle of the branch that he is standing on. This is then all neatly bisected by the angle of the sword which cuts across the model.
